    We were the only customers in this friendly quaint hostelry. I loved the crisp batter on the fish, the chips were piping hot and delicious and the peas fresh. My companion had a dish with an assortment of seafood and polished off every last mouthful. The service was swift and friendly. The prices fair. The menu was interesting and a return visit is definitely envisaged to try the other dishes.

    The meal was ruined by a noisy group completely dominating the restaurant which quickly emptied. Conversation with my guests was impossible. The whole of the bar and restaurant areas were open and there were no divisions or soft furnishings to absorb the sound.

    We have had very good experiences in the past, however a combination of an 'event' happening at the same time, and our seating time, meant we were disappointed. We were advised service of the food would be delayed. In itself this was well informed, and the food arrived aporoximately 45 minutes later as they had warned. However the standard was not good, with the roast beef clearly being the remains of the joint, hard and grissly. Service at the bar was prompt and courteous. The noise level, caused by the party/event was unfortunate and ruined the birthday meal.

    Went for Sunday lunch was told 30min wait time took over 1:30hrs. Was told only 2 chefs on and big christening party in. Said shouldn’t have taken bookings. Beef was very tough and potatoes very hard. Shame used to be very good.

    Lovely food and excellent staff as always - but surely it’s time to change the menu or at least add some daily specials? The menu has been the same since you reopened and for those of us who are regulars it’s getting a bit boring.

    Friendly staff. Inexperienced chef who put chicken in the vegetarian curry for which they were very apologetic & I chose beetroot salad instead. Steak was tender & chips were tasty. We all enjoyed our meals.

    The staff were lovely and the food good, although we only went for a light lunch. We moved tables as there was a party sitting near us that were quite loud and then it was fine. The White Hart was always a cosy, friendly pub to go to but although the staff did their best, the surroundings were bland and boring. And surprisingly quiet for a Saturday lunchtime.

    Very slow service at the bar, they had run out of cider and at least one dish on the menu by 1 pm on a Wednesday. Not as good as it used to be for either service or menu. Disappointing.

    We had a delicious meal at the White Hart - so much better than the last two times I've eaten there. The Sussex Smokie was packed with prawns and white fish in a hot, cheesy sauce, and I was able to swop my chips for mash. My friend's Pork Schnitzel was tender and not too thick, and his chocolate brownie was smothered in hot chocolate sauce. The service, as always, was good, ditto the ambience of this lovely old pub.

    I just love it here. I can’t say I would order the Chicken and bacon sandwich again, but that’s personal choice as my mum loved it! It’s a little dark when ghe back room is closed as there’s not much natural light. The staff are ALWAYS so friendly, and it continues to be my fave place for Sunday roast.

    We ate outside in the pretty courtyard garden. There were several favourite dishes on the menu that were 'not available' sadly, but the fish and chips that we then settled on was very good. Friendly staff and would visit again.

    White Hart is a good pub / restaurant, however the recent change of ownership has introduced a more limited food menu of 4-5 main course plus 4 choices of burgers. This is much more restrictive than previously and, with a larger group, perhaps too restrictive. This said, quality of food was average to good and the prices competitive. Service was good and, with BREXIT issues and COVID lockdowns ending I feel will improve further (as with other establishments as they get back on their feet). All in all I will continue to visit, however would encourage a wider menu to be introduced. If you have a large group there will probably not be enough choice. Beers are good, pub is now owned by Badger Breweries.
